A new park plan for Historic Old Mill State Park, on Marshall County Road #4 between Argyle and Newfolden.
In addition to the iconic log cabin and steam-powered flour mill, beach, swinging bridge, picnic and campgrounds, the park may also soon host a staging area for Horseback Riding.
Chris Weir-Koetter – Strategic Program Manager for the DNR, says there has been great interest in including horseback riding in the current management plan.
Old Mill already hosts a wonderful wildlife area, with deer, beaver and ruffed grouse along with prairie wildflowers and wooded trails. Weir-Koetter says trails already established outside the park would connect with the staging area and 1.6 miles of trail inside the park for a network of some 40 miles of recreational horseback riding.
